My great grandfather was Thomas Henry Manly/Manley. He was born in Giles County, TN 1872 but moved early to either Lawrence or Colbert County, AL. He had a brother named Calvin and a sister named Mattie (Martha).
Their father was John A. Manley/Manly who married first Rebecca Rogers and second Henrietta Rogers (supposedly Rebecca's sister, but I have not proven that and think Henrietta may have been a cousin instead of a sister). John was born about 1849. John had a brother, William, who died the same day as John in either Lawrence Co., AL or Colbert County, Alabama.
John Manley/Manly may have been the son of Thomas T. Manley/Manly. They are living close together on the 1870 Giles County, Tennessee census and Thomas is living next door to William Manley/Manly, John's brother. Two different censuses have listed Thomas as born in two different places: AL and TN.
Anyone familiar with this family? Thanks!
